Vier Schriften in einem Halblederband d.Zt. auf fünf Bünden mit zwei Rückenschilden und &#150;linienvergoldung. Etwas berieben, Ecken bestoßen. - Erste Ausgabe (Faivre 80 &#150; 83 [s.u.]; nicht bei Goedeke). &#150; Etwas stockfle-ckig, zeitgenöss. Name &#132;F.Streiff&#147; a.d. Vorsatz. Einzeltitel mit Leseweisern. - Besonders so vollständig mit dem Haupttitel und allen vier &#132;Saamenkörnchen&#147; zählt die Sammlung zu den seltensten Veröffentlichungen Eckartshausens. So kann ich in den mir zugänglichen Bibliothekskatalogen nur einen Standort nachweisen (UB Augsburg, in späterem Einband), darüberhinaus ein Exemplar mit nur drei der enthaltenen Titel (UB Oldenburg). ECKARTSHAUSENs frz. Biograph A.Faivre konnte für die Bibliographie kein ganz vollständiges finden: &#132;Malgré mes recherches, et celles du prêt international, je ne suis pas parvenu à retrouver d&#146;ouvrage portant ce titre.&#147; (S.712f.). Es ist wohl auch die Veröffentlichung, in der sich ECKARTSHAUSENs mystische Weltsicht und sein Denksystem am persönlichsten zeigt. In einem Brief an den Schweizer Theosophen N.A.KIRCHBERGER schreibt er: &#132;Übrigens fragen Sie mich warum ich meinen letzten Wercken die Zahl 15 beygesetzt habe, und ich kann Ihnen hierauf nur antworten, weil diese Zahl wircklich meine Zahl ist, aus den Eigenschaften dieser Zahl werden Sie mein ganzes Ich kennen, über seine Zahl kann keiner hinaus. . Interessiert Sie mehr von der Zahl 15 zu wissen so kan Ihnen PETRUS BUNGUS welcher Numerorum Mysteria schrieb einigen Aufschluss geben.&#147; (zit. nach Faivre S.712). &#147;ECKARTSHAUSEN was an eminent and influential exponent of early German romanticism. His work in natural philosophy and Christian theosophy was read and discussed by some of the most well-known European writers and poets of his time. In Germany GOETHE, SCHILLER, HERDER (who regarded him as the prophet of &#145;Harmonie im Sittlichen und in der Natur&#146;) and especially also NOVALIS knew his work. In Russia, where his works appeared in translation, he was mentioned in the novels of NIKOLAI GOGOL (Dead Souls) and LEO TOLSTOY (War and Peace). Tsar ALEXANDER I. was an avid reader of his work. In France, Eckartshausen influenced contemporary mystical thinkers and Böhmist theosophers such as SAINT-MARTIN (&#145;le Philosophe Inconnu&#146;).&#148; (Th.Harmsen, Ritman Library [wo dieser Titel fehlt]).

        Essai sur la théorie des nombres.

      Duprat 1797-1798, Paris - A fine copy of the first book entirely dedicated to number theory. The work contains Legendre&#146;s discovery of the law of quadratic reciprocity, which Gauss referred to as the &#145;golden theorem&#146; and for which he published six proofs in his Disquisitiones arithmeticae (1801). ?Norman 1325; Parkinson Breakthroughs 231. "The theory of numbers in the eighteenth century remained a series of disconnected results. The most important works in the subject were Euler&#146;s Anleitung zur Algebra (1770) and Legendre&#146;s Essai sur la théorie des nombres (1798)." (Kline). "Legendre was one of the most prominent mathematicians of Europe in the 19th Century His texts were very influential. In 1798 he published his Theory of Numbers, the first book devoted exclusively to number theory. It underwent several editions, but was soon to be superseded by Gauss&#146; Disquisitiones arithmeticae"Many of Legendre&#146;s results were found independently by Gauss, and seriouspriority disputes arose between them. Legendre&#146;s proofs, moreover, left much tobe desired, even by mid-18th-century standards. For example, he discovered thelaw of quadratic reciprocity, unaware of Euler&#146;s prior discovery, and gave a proofbased on what he viewed as a self-evident fact, namely the existence of infinitelymany primes in any arithmetic progression an + b (n = 1, 2, 3, , with a and b relatively prime). This was a very difficult result, proved subsequently by Dirichlet using deep methods of analysis. Legendre was chagrined when Gauss, who gave a rigorous proof, claimed the result as his own. In connection with this law, Legendre introduced the useful and celebrated Legendre symbol (a/p) (it does not denote division), with p an odd prime and a an integer not divisible by p : (a/p) = 1 if x2 ? a (mod p) is solvable and (a/p)=-1 if it is not. In terms of this symbol, the law of quadratic reciprocity can be stated succinctly as (p/p)(q/p) = (-1)(p-1)(q-1)/4" (Kleiner, Excursions in the History of Mathematics, pp. 17-18). 4to (258 x 193 mm ), pp [i-v] vixxii [2:errata] 472, [56:tables], [2:publisher's catalogue], contemporary and unrestored French gilt-ruled calf, all edges colored in red, red leather spine label, some light wear and rubbing, a piece of leather scratched from the rear board, book plate presenting the book as a prize, three interesting manuscript leaves with mathematical contents laid in, fine and clean throughout.

        Considérations sur la France.

      - Londres [i.e. Bâle], 1797. In-8, cartonnage ocre à la Bradel de l'époque, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, (2) f. de faux-titre et titre, iv, 242 p. [sic pour 246]. Edition originale de premier tirage d'une extrême rareté dont Monglond parle longuement dans 'La France révolutionnaire et impériale', et qu'il affirme n'exister qu'en un unique exemplaire à la Bibliothèque de Genève. Depuis, un autre exemplaire a été acquis par la BnF et figure à son catalogue (RES 8- LB42- 242 AH). Publiée à Bâle où l'auteur s'était réfugié sous la fausse adresse de Londres, elle se distingue par sa pagination en 242 p. les pages 241-246 paginées par erreur 236-242, la vignette de titre "couronne, globe avec trois fleurs de lys encadré de deux rameaux", et la dernière ligne de la citation en exergue sur le titre, prise de Cicéron : "ordienda est potissimùm". "Pour la première fois sur le continent et dans la langue même des révolutionnaires, la pensée s'efforce de faire face à la radicalité de la Révolution ( ). Ces 'Considérations' fondent la tradition de la réaction, ou de la contre-révolution, de ce courant de pensée ( ) qui rejette la révolution tout entière, dans son principe comme contraire à la nature même de l'homme social et moral" (Pierre Manent, in 'Dictionnaire des oeuvres politiques', P.U.F., p. 501). La portée et la descendance de cet ouvrage dans l'histoire des idées et de la vie politique française seront immenses. (Monglond, IV, col. 6-11. Barbier, I, 713). Quelques rares petites auréoles.

        Voyage de la Pérouse autour du Monde, publié conformément au Décret du 22 Avril 1791, et rédigé par M. L. A. Milet-Mureau.

      Paris: de l'Imprimerie de la République, 1797 - 4 quarto text volumes (293 x 218 mm) and folio atlas (572 x 410 mm). Vols. II-IV uniformly bound in contemporary tree calf (ticket of Guédon of Paris in vol. IV), smooth spines divided by green morocco bands decorated with interlocking gilt circles, red morocco twin labels, spines richly gilt (decorated with fleurons, geometrical tools and large lyre device in two compartments), sides with a gilt castellated border embellished with urns, lyres and floral baskets, gilt edge roll, all edges gilt, gilt geometrical turn-ins, pale blue endpapers and silk page markers; vol. I bound to match at the time but differing slightly (endpapers watermarked 1813); atlas folio rebound to style in half calf over 19th-century marbled paper boards. Vol. I with old repairs at head and foot of lower joint (front joint partially split but sound), vol. III with short split at foot of front joint and light abrasions to top edge, some slight scratches and abrasions to sides, paper flaw at corner of C4 (vol. I), G2 misbound in same volume, touch of old pale dampstaining at top fore corner of vols. III and IV, bound without the half-title and final colophon leaf in vol. I; yet overall a very attractive set, wide-margined and clean and with fine impressions of the plates and maps. Engraved frontispiece portrait of La Pérouse from a miniature by Alexandre Tardieu, atlas with emblematic title-page engraved by Philippe Frière after Moreau le Jeune, symbolising France revealing the Pacific to art, science and history and featuring a weeping putto leaning on an anchor in the hope of La Pérouse's survival, 30 folding maps, 3 folding coastal elevations, and 36 plates (69 in total, complete). First edition of "one of the great documents of French exploration in the Pacific Ocean. In addition to a detailed account of the expedition itself, these volumes contain invaluable scientific information, observations on the natives that were encountered, and a wealth of geographic and cartographic data. The beautiful Atlas, with its finely engraved maps, charts, and plates, includes a detailed chart of San Francisco Bay, the first representation of the crested quail, and several maps and plates of the harbours at Monterey and San Diego, as well as two charts and one view of the Sandwich Islands. It is a magnificent production, and some authorities consider the engraving and craftsmanship to be superior even to that in the Cook-Webber Atlas that accompanies the journals of the great English explorer's third voyage it is one of the finest narratives of maritime exploration ever written, and certainly deserves to hold a place of high honour among the great travel accounts of the 18th century" (Howell Anniversary Catalogue 72, Richard Reed's essay). The atlas volume contains magnificent maps of Russian Asia, Japan, the Pacific northwest coast, San Francisco, Monterey, and also Necker Island. The most significant results of La Pérouse's voyage are the charts of the then imperfectly known Asiatic side of the Pacific and the details of "the peculiarities he observed in the natives of the northwest coast of North America, [which] are especially valuable" (Sabin). En route to Kamchatka, La Pérouse was the first to navigate safely and chart the Japan Sea and the strait between the island of Sakhalin and the northernmost island of Japan, which bears his name. At Kamchatka he received instructions to proceed to Australia to assess the extent of British plans in New South Wales. Travelling via Samoa, where he discovered the islands of Savaii, Manono and Apolima in December 1787, and through the Tongan group, he arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788, just hours after Captain Phillip had arrived with the First Fleet. La Pérouse's habit of forwarding despatches whenever the opportunity offered ensured their survival; the final despatches were sent from Botany Bay, after which the expedition was never seen again. Evidence slowly came to light that both ships were wrecked on the reefs aro [Attributes: First Edition]

Raríssimo exemplar da segunda edição da tradução portuguesa, que teve primeira edição em Coimbra 1738 e terceira edição em 1832. Obra muito importante e valiosa para estudar, não só os cavalos, mas mais ainda, a mundividência própria do mundo rural, muito ligada aos ciclos da natureza e caraterizada por conhecimentos práticos transmitidos de geração em geração, que foram recolhidos nesta obra. Inocêncio não conheceu esta obra nem nenhuma das suas edições. Pallau, 1990, 440 refere a primeira edição da tradução portuguesa de 1738 da qual não se conhecem exemplares em Portugal e uma segunda edição em Espanhol, Madrid 1729.

Mais l&#146;autosuffisance économique de la Chine, qui depuis des siècles n&#146;avait admis de présence étrangère, rendit l&#146;ambassade le Lord Macartney peu fructueuse. Plus qu&#146;une réussite politique, cette ambassade fut l&#146;occasion de cet admirable recueil qui livre un témoignage unique sur la Chine du XVIIIe siècle.

        Voyage de la Pérouse autour du Monde,

      Paris: de l'Imprimerie de la République,, 1797. publié conformément au Décret du 22 Avril 1791, et rédigé par M. L. A. Milet-Mureau. 4 quarto text volumes (293 x 218 mm) and folio atlas (572 x 410 mm). Vols. II-IV uniformly bound in contemporary tree calf (ticket of Guédon of Paris in vol. IV), smooth spines divided by green morocco bands decorated with interlocking gilt circles, red morocco twin labels, spines richly gilt (decorated with fleurons, geometrical tools and large lyre device in two compartments), sides with a gilt castellated border embellished with urns, lyres and floral baskets, gilt edge roll, all edges gilt, gilt geometrical turn-ins, pale blue endpapers and silk page markers; vol. I bound to match at the time but differing slightly (endpapers watermarked 1813); atlas folio rebound to style in half calf over 19th-century marbled paper boards. Engraved frontispiece portrait of La Pérouse from a miniature by Alexandre Tardieu, atlas with emblematic title-page engraved by Philippe Frière after Moreau le Jeune, symbolising France revealing the Pacific to art, science and history and featuring a weeping putto leaning on an anchor in the hope of La Pérouse's survival, 30 folding maps, 3 folding coastal elevations, and 36 plates (69 in total, complete). Vol. I with old repairs at head and foot of lower joint (front joint partially split but sound), vol. III with short split at foot of front joint and light abrasions to top edge, some slight scratches and abrasions to sides, paper flaw at corner of C4 (vol. I), G2 misbound in same volume, touch of old pale dampstaining at top fore corner of vols. III and IV, bound without the half-title and final colophon leaf in vol. I; yet overall a very attractive set, wide-margined and clean and with fine impressions of the plates and maps. First edition of "one of the great documents of French exploration in the Pacific Ocean. In addition to a detailed account of the expedition itself, these volumes contain invaluable scientific information, observations on the natives that were encountered, and a wealth of geographic and cartographic data. The beautiful Atlas, with its finely engraved maps, charts, and plates, includes a detailed chart of San Francisco Bay, the first representation of the crested quail, and several maps and plates of the harbours at Monterey and San Diego, as well as two charts and one view of the Sandwich Islands. It is a magnificent production, and some authorities consider the engraving and craftsmanship to be superior even to that in the Cook-Webber Atlas that accompanies the journals of the great English explorer's third voyage … it is one of the finest narratives of maritime exploration ever written, and certainly deserves to hold a place of high honour among the great travel accounts of the 18th century" (Howell Anniversary Catalogue 72, Richard Reed's essay). The atlas volume contains magnificent maps of Russian Asia, Japan, the Pacific northwest coast, San Francisco, Monterey, and also Necker Island. The most significant results of La Pérouse's voyage are the charts of the then imperfectly known Asiatic side of the Pacific and the details of "the peculiarities he observed in the natives of the northwest coast of North America, [which] are especially valuable" (Sabin). En route to Kamchatka, La Pérouse was the first to navigate safely and chart the Japan Sea and the strait between the island of Sakhalin and the northernmost island of Japan, which bears his name. At Kamchatka he received instructions to proceed to Australia to assess the extent of British plans in New South Wales. Travelling via Samoa, where he discovered the islands of Savaii, Manono and Apolima in December 1787, and through the Tongan group, he arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788, just hours after Captain Phillip had arrived with the First Fleet. La Pérouse's habit of forwarding despatches whenever the opportunity offered ensured their survival; the final despatches were sent from Botany Bay, after which the expedition was never seen again. Evidence slowly came to light that both ships were wrecked on the reefs around the islands northwest of Australia. One crew was massacred by the local inhabitants. The Astrolabe was unloaded, taken apart and a two-masted craft built from its wreckage, which left westward some 9 months later, its fate unknown. Two men, one a "chief" and the other his servant, stayed behind, surviving until 1823. A most attractively-presented set of this important account. Provenance: early 20th-century bookplate (in each volume) of the Australian collector R. S. Fox, who amassed a fine exploration library; neat oval book label (in vol. IV) of the travel bibliophile Martin Greene; large printed book label (in vols. II-IV) of the Bibliothèque de Morfontaine, the library of Joseph Bonaparte (1768-1844), elder brother of Napoleon, who created him successively king of Naples and Sicily (1806-08) and Spain (1808-13). Morfontaine was "the magnificent Grammont chateau not far from Paris… where Joseph lived in splendour in the days of his brother's greatness" (Douglas Gordon, The Book Collector, Autumn 1981, p. 377). Joseph also acted as minister plenipotentiary and on 30 September 1800 signed a treaty of friendship and commerce between France and the United States at Morfontaine. Following Napoleon's fall Joseph lived in the United States between 1817 and 1832 – where he was known as the Comte de Servilliers - building a fine residence called Point Breeze, at Bordentown, New Jersey, and transferring his library from Morfontaine. At Breeze Point "the grand salon was preceded by a small anteroom and a library on the left side of the entrance hall containing a portion of the count's 8,000 volumes. This was the largest collection in the country; at the time the Library of Congress contained 6,500 books" (Patricia Tyson Stroud, The Man Who Had Been King: The American Exile of Napoleon's Brother Joseph, 2005, p. 66). Joseph's estate passed to his grandson, who quickly auctioned off the household contents, including the library, which was sold at Bordentown on 18 September 1845.

Cook; - vita of the artist: Jean-François de Galaup de La Pérouse (1741 1788) was a French Naval officer and explorer whose expedition vanished in Oceania. La Pérouse crossed the Pacific Ocean in 100 days, arriving at Macau, where he sold the furs acquired in Alaska, dividing the profits among his men. Lapérouse sailed all the way south to the Spanish Las Californias in 1786. He stopped at the Presidio of San Francisco long enough to create an outline map of the Bay Area, Plan du Port du St. Francois, which was reproduced as Map 33 in L. Aubert's 1797 Atlas du Voyage de la Perouse. Laterhe arrived in Monterey Bay and at the Presidio of Monterey.In 1787 after a visit to Manila, he set out for the northeast Asian coasts. He saw the island of Quelpart, present-day Cheju in South Korea, which had been visited by Europeans only once before when a group of Dutchmen shipwrecked there in 1635. He visited the Asian mainland coasts of Korea.

        History of British Birds.

      2 vols. [1: History and Description of Land Birds. 2: Containing the History and Description of Water Birds]. Newcastle, Printed by Sol. Hodgson/ Edward Walker for Beilby & Bewick 1797-1804. With 448 textual wood-engravings. XXX + 336; XX + 400 pp. Clean and well-preserved copy bound in nice contemporary full marbled calf, early rebacked with coloured labels and richly gilt spines. * 2nd issue. Large Imperial printed in 207 copies.Thomas Bewick [1753-1828] is best known for his 'History of British Birds', which is admired today mainly for its wood engravings, especially the small, sharply observed, and often humorous vignettes known as tail-pieces. He is credited with popularizing, a technical innovation in the printing of illustrations using wood. He adopted metal-engraving tools to cut hard boxwood across the grain, producing printing blocks that could be integrated with metal type, but were much more durable than traditional woodcuts. The result was high quality illustration at a low price. [Wikipedia]. The text of the first volume dealing with 'Land Birds' is by Beilby and the second volume 'Water Birds' is by Bewick. All the wood engravings are by Bewick.Zimmer p. 57; Nissen IVB, 95. Roscoe 15A.

        A Description of above Three Hundred Animals, Viz, Beasts, Birds, Fishes, Serpents, & Insects. With a particular Account of the Manner of Catching Whales in Greenland Extracted from the best Authors, and adapted to the use of all capacities. Illustrated with 100 Elegant Copper Plates.

      Edinburgh Printed for Bell & Bradfute and W. Creech 1797 - 12mo, 174 x 97 mms., pp. [3] 4 [5- 8 contents, 9 - 11 blank, 12 engraved plate] [2] 3 - 210], engraved frontispiece[by D. Lizars] naked youth next to lion, 100 engraved plates, including folding engraved plate of Greenland Whale Fishery, and an engraving of a whale, presentation gift inscription on recto of front free end-paper (obscured by old tape marks), contemporary sheepskin, sometime rebacked. The work seemed to enjoy popularity for almost a century, if not longer. In The Political Review and Monthly Mirror of the Times for 1813, a reviewer commented, "There is a combination of elegance and utility in the above Work, which enforces from us a recommendation to general perusal. It is an Epitome of Natural History, enriched by the hand of a Scholar and Philosopher, and should be esteemed as a necessary appendage to every Family Library. The accuracy and elegance of the engravings, the neatness of the execution, together with the simple dignity of description, it is but justice to say, deserve the highest commendation, and reflect equal merit on all concerned." The work described is attributed to A. D. McQuin who seems to have appropriate some of Boreman's work. This work was first published in 1736, and another ten editions followed. This printing is not located by ESTC, but there is a copy in the NLS. The frontispiece is different from those found in other editions.
